British Independent Film Awards Winners Announced

4 December 2011 2:40 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It has been a fantastic year for British independent film with Steven McQueen’s Shame, Ben Wheatley’s Kill List and the directorial debut of Paddy Considine, Tyrannosaur, heading up a fine list of nominees.

There was a particularly strong set of nominees competing for the Douglas Hickox Award for Best Debut Director with Richard Ayoade’s wonderful coming of age love story Submarine and Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block being firm favourites here. Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk About Kevin made for a fine return for director Lynne Ramsay and there’s a lot of love for Andrew Haigh’s Weekend, which was represented tonight in two categories.

It’s great to see Paddy Considine’s film do so well, not least the award for Olivia Colman, and the awards represent a very promising time for the British film industry, with some very strong voices emerging in the last year. »

"Tyrannosaur" Tops the British Independent Film Awards 2011

4 December 2011 2:20 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Live streaming of the British Independent Film Awards this evening came off much more smoothly than last night's hiccuping and lurching feed from the European Film Awards, which is a damn fine thing, considering that the show was far, far more entertaining. Particularly since host Chris O'Dowd became increasingly inebriated as the evening wore on.

So, the full list of winners and nominees:

Best British Independent Film: Tyrannosaur.

Also nominated: Senna, Shame, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Best Director: Lynne Ramsay for We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Also nominated: Ben Wheatley for Kill List, Steve McQueen for Shame, Tomas Alfredson for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Paddy Considine for Tyrannosaur.

The Douglas Hickox Award for Best Debut Director: Paddy Considine for Tyrannosaur.

Also nominated: Joe Cornish for Attack the Block, Ralph Fiennes for Coriolanus, John Michael McDonagh for The Guard and Richard Ayoade for Submarine. »

British Independent Film Awards Nominations Are In

1 November 2011 8:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With the London Film Festival now over, a swathe of summer releases coming out on DVD, and London’s Regent Street decked out in cartoon character-based lights, it’s that time of year again – Awards Season.

And while we’re still a few months away from the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscars (although not the ‘For Your Consideration’ campaigns), the nominees for the British Independent Film Awards were announced yesterday. We’ve posted the full list below.

While it would be hard to fault any of the films nominated in terms of quality, what you may notice is that some of the films nominated were released at the beginning of this year (Submarine for instance), while some (Wild Bill springs to mind) won’t see the light of day until next year. We asked Elliot Grove, the founder of the awards, who explained that the films that hadn’t been »
